The Sugar Solution is published by the editors of Prevention magazine who claim that their program can bring about blood sugar balance within one month.
It is targeted toward the large number of people who are not diabetic but are nonetheless affected by poor blood sugar balance that may not only be affecting their ability to lose weight, but also may be causing symptoms such as fatigue, depression, and poor concentration.
The Sugar Solution focuses on three major areas; healthy eating, exercise and stress relief to give readers the knowledge they need to prevent the onset of diabetes as well as how to create balance if already diagnosed with a blood sugar related syndrome such as insulin resistance or polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
The diet is centered on selecting foods with a low glycemic index. Three balanced meals as well as three small snacks are recommended daily so as to provide the body with a steady supply of nutritious fuel throughout the day.
Dieters are provided with practical strategies for selecting healthy foods when eating out, how to indulge in sweets without disrupting blood sugar balance and are given advice on nutritional supplements to enhance the effects of the program.
The online program includes meal plans and many recipes such as:
Whole wheat English muffin with cashew butter and jam, cheerios with blueberries, 1 cup skim milk
Orange and popcorn
Turkey sandwich, carrots and apple
Carrots and green beans dipped in tahini
Chicken tetrazinni with extra noodles, spinach, dinner roll with smart balance, cantaloupe and 1 cup skim milk
Tangerine and cheese crackers
The importance of exercise in a weight reduction program is outlined and The Sugar Solution includes a 10 minute strength training regime. The online program also provides animated fitness demonstrations.
Exercise suggestions are made that will suit a busy lifestyle and won’t require expensive gym memberships or a large time commitment.
The Sugar Solution book costs $24.95.
If you have already been diagnosed a blood sugar imbalance or have a family history of diabetes or heart disease, the Sugar Solution provides a balanced program that will not only help you lose weight but will also help you create a lifestyle that will support health over the long term.
